Kingston Mobilite: Detailed Review

The Kingston Mobilite is a wireless streamer with its own battery backup. That makes it a niche product in a category that's growing. There are plenty of usage scenarios but very few would warrant the purchase of this product in particular. OTG flash drives are quite common now and those devices are ideal for most people, unless you wish to share your files with a lot of people. So it makes sense when you wish to carry your movie/TV series/audiobooks with you when you're travelling with friends and you all want to watch something or the other.
 
Coming to the performance and features aspect of the device, it is quite good. We streamed the same full HD movie to three devices, namely the HTC One M8, the Galaxy S5 and the Nexus 5. All three devices played the same video with ease while a Nexus 4 experienced stuttering, so playback is more centered on the mobile device rather than the streamer in this case. This goes for the formats as well, get a good media player on any platform and you're good to go. The device is capable of being a power bank as well but it can only manage one full charge. The app for the device seems rather hastily put together but is functional in all aspects. Weighing only 98 grams, this device is quite lightweight and slim. There are LED indicator lights for the mode that the device is operating in. The card reader slot accepts SD sized cards and there is only one USB slot which means you can either use a flash drive or use it as a backup power bank. The Kingston Mobilite might have been more lucrative if it could support more memory card form factors.
